It has already picked up a brilliant review from Classic Mystery blog:
"What is ultimately chilling about the whole thing though is that while nothing in the plot is so odd that it couldn’t have happened, as per the author’s afterword, almost all of it actually did. Len has used these events to produce another outstanding historical tale. This series of historical crime tales is definitely one that should be on your must-read list."
